Legalize It! CA NORML begins to Reform Prop. 64


What can you say, no plan or legislation is perfect but the prohibition of cannabis/ marijuana is over as we know it. The goal of human rights advocacy for cannabis/ marijuana achieves another milestone in our time!

Now its time to start reforming some of the items we are concerned about and remain steadfast in Humboldt NORML’s mission for a sustainable cannabis industry and environment.

You all smoke a fatty for us and the people who could not be here!

Cal NORML’s Post-64 Reform Agenda

See Cal NORML’s analysis of Prop. 64.

The following suggested legislative fixes to Proposition 64 were discussed and agreed upon at Cal NORML’s membership meeting on September 8.

(1) Expand areas where marijuana can be used for medical and adult use, particularly when vaporized.

(2) Protect cannabis users from discrimination in employment, housing, parental and medical rights.

(3) Forbid local bans on deliveries of cannabis from licensed providers to qualified individuals.

(4) Increase tax breaks for qualified medical marijuana patients.

(5) Encourage and protect licensing of small businesses, nonprofits and agricultural cooperatives with financial and regulatory incentives, and discourage monopolization and ownership concentration by large-scale corporate and big-money interests.

(6) Ban local taxes on donations of medical marijuana.

(7) Require the collection of demographic data on applicants and licensees.

(8) Protect the confidentiality of license applications in order to protect privacy and public safety.
